Robert Mooney Establishes New Endowment in the College of Liberal Arts at Texas State


Robert Mooney Establishes New Endowment in the College of Liberal Arts at Texas State.

Robert L. Mooney of San Antonio, Texas, a Texas State University alumnus and former 
member of the College of Liberal Arts Advisory Board, has established an endowment 
in honor of his parents. The Joe R. and Adelle T. Mooney Excellence in Education 
Endowment will support academic programs in the College of Liberal Arts.

Liberal Arts Dean Michael Hennessy said, “Mr. Mooney’s generous gift is a fitting tribute 
to his parents. The endowment will support student research in the college’s nine 
departments and three centers, enhancing in countless ways the work of our finest students 
and the faculty who support them. We are deeply grateful to Bob for this gift—and for his 
devoted service to the College.”

Robert Mooney is CEO of J. R. Mooney Galleries, founded in 1947 in San Antonio, Texas
The Mooney Galleries have long provided representation and framing for notable Texas
artists and have supplied art for institutions and private collectors around the world.

The portraits, below, of Robert Mooney’s parents J. R. Mooney and Adelle T. Mooney, 
were painted in 1991 by the late Texas Artist Paul Reynolds, who was long associated 
with the Mooney Galleries.
